In At Once, in Helsinki Knif turns his gaze again towards the human being and the enigmatic nature of life. The theme of the work is a miracle as part of today’s worldview.

“The movement in the work is original and unique to Knif. Twitching and surprising. The talented dancers do it accurately and clearly articulating. The best part is that the movement doesn’t stop even if the story seems to stand still in between.”
Jussi Tossavainen, HS 4.10.2018.
“At Once, in Helsinki is one of Knif’s largest works and clearly the most crystallized. Topics that are important for the choreographer have now been successfully raised to a more general level, while still maintaining touching feel and personality.”
